Dear Folks:

Do any plans exist to make a "compact" Five-SeveN? With such a high mag capacity and low recoil, this gun in a compact version would be very desirable. Thanks to all who respond.

I wish they would but I doubt it. FNH basically is selling their existing military guns in the commercial market. They have not developed any gun specifically for the commercial market.

Well, they do have the FNP's for the commercial market - but a compact 5-7 pistol. I don't see that happening either.

I would imagine that a shorter barrel would affect the needed velocity for the round. So, it probably wouldn't work too well.

Or, just shorten the slide/frame, thread the existing barrel without shortening that, and call it a 'tactical' model. Still retains the original length of the barrel for ballistics, but makes the gun itself shorter to holster.
